The Tahiti Pearl Regatta is a Polynesian event highlighted by the races, the atmosphere and the discovery.
This is the meeting place for sailors from Tahiti & her Islands and eventually the world. 3 days of races on the turquoise water of the lagoon, bordered by the barrier reef and the deep blue Ocean, immersed in the friendly atmosphere, your five senses will be intoxicated by: The diaporama of the regatta: Raiatea the sacred, Tahaa the Vanilla island, Huahine the wild and Bora Bora the pearl of the Pacific The beat of the Toere at the start line, the vivacious tamures of the local bands during the race-stop nights, the sacred words of the Tahitian priest who bless the crews and invoke the clemency of “Moana” (Sea).
The taste of fresh coconut offered on the finish line, of the fish cooked on the coral, the ipo and the poe, the flavours of the spit-cooked veal. A culinary delight every night! The garland of scented flowers, the perfume of Tahaa vanilla, the fragrance of the islands when approaching… The feeling of the warm tropical water, the wind in your sails and the warmth of the sun. Especially the kindness of the inhabitants always comes to the fore.
More than a race this is a sailing extravaganza, a Polynesian festival.
